Paul is not setting aside the law, Paul is talking to believers, and he is saying “Circumcision and for that matter baptism will not save you; if you are a covenant man you walk in faithfulness to the word of God, the law word. You obey Gods commandments. But if you have a covenant status, if you are both circumcised and baptized,” (As many were as a kind of double insurance) “and you do not keep the law, it becomes un-circumcision, un-baptism for you; and you are then outside the covenant.”
